Christine (2016) is now on Netflix

Seven new titles just touched down on Netflix with three coming from director Antonio Campos ahead of his big Netflix movie, The Devil all The Time coming in September. Here’s a full look at what’s new on Netflix today plus we’ll take a look at the daily top 10 movies and TV series too. 

Many of the additions added today were not included in the monthly preview so as always, keep it locked right here on What’s on Netflix by subscribing via email below or signing up for push notifications to get updated of the daily new releases.

Now let’s get onto what’s new:

Safety Not Guaranteed (2012)

Genre: Comedy, Drama, Romance
Director: Colin Trevorrow
Cast: Aubrey Plaza, Lauren Carlos, Basil Harris, Mary Lynn Rajskub
Runtime: 86 min

One of the titles that was announced in advance is Safety Not Guaranteed which is an excellent comedy (91% on RottenTomatoes) starring Parks and Recreation’s Aubrey Plaza.

It follows a set of journalists looking to get a story out of a man online looking to find companionship to go time traveling with.

Christine (2016)

Genre: Biography, Drama
Director: Antonio Campos
Cast: Rebecca Hall, Michael C. Hall, Tracy Letts, Maria Dizzia
Runtime: 119 min

In truth, all three of the Antonio Campos movies added today are worthy of your time but if you have to pick just one, pick Christine which has previously streamed on Netflix US before but is a welcome re-addition.

Inspired by true events, the movie follows a TV reporter who has been moved to cover stories a little out of her comfort zone that often includes violence.

An Easy Girl (2020)

Genre: Comedy, Drama, French
Director: Rebecca Zlotowski
Cast: Mina Farid, Zahia Dehar, Benoît Magimel, Nuno Lopes, Clotilde Courau, Loubna Abidar
Runtime: 92 mins

The only Netflix Original added today is a French pickup from a couple of years ago that has premiered at multiple awards festivals.

Here’s what you can expect from the hour and a half long flick:

“A teen girl is drawn to her cousin’s hedonistic lifestyle when they spend the summer together in Cannes as she learns about herself and her own values.”
